Eyes to the Skies

(Recommended for Ages 8+)

Join us for our telescope nights!

These FREE, informal events are held in the Camino parking lot behind the Explorium (weather permitting).

We will explore the skies with our professional-grade 16-inch Meade LX Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope.

For Planetarium Nights, join us inside the Community Center in the Maple Room. We’ll have a fun demonstration and a fantastic journey with the stars in our inflatable planetarium.

  • All children under age 18 must be
  • accompanied by a parent/guardian.
  • No registration required! The telescope will be out for at least one hour after the scheduled start time (weather permitting).
  • Stars must be visible for the telescope to align.
  • In the event of foul weather, our indoor inflatable planetarium will be used instead of the telescope.*
